Applications of Graph Theory to Music

 

Jason Brown 

 

Abstract

 

Music is all about transitions – between melody notes, between chords, and between onsets in a rhythmic pattern – and graph theory is a perfect tool for analysis. In this talk we discuss how to enumerate consonant chords, why we like certain scales and and rhythms, why we are drawn to the repetitive nature of the blues, and what graph theory can say about music authentication.
